Buhari did not travel for medical check-up -Okorocha

Governor Rochas Okorocha has faulted Junaid Mohammed’s assertion that President Buhari went to Germany for medical reasons.

The Imo state Governor was part of the president’s entourage to Germany.

Okorocha spoke to State House correspondents in Abuja, saying that the official engagements of Buhari had no connection, whatsoever, with medication.

“President never went for any medical check-up.

“At least I was with him till 1.00a.m, after the dinner before I left him and he went to bed.

“I went to bed and the following day I came out to see him in the morning.

“So, the president never went for any medical at all. The only hospital we went to was to see a general who had an accident.

“These are some of the things that people make uninformed comments.

“If this issue had been on issue on how to move Nigeria forward, you won’t see on social media, you will not see comment on it, nobody we talk about it,” Okorocha said.

Governor Okorocha also reacted to insinuations that Aisha attacked the President.

“If you have been with the President, you will understand that that statement was made as his usual style of cracking jokes.

“Watch the video again. When he was responding, he was smiling. I don’t think the meaning that is given to it is what it is.

“If not, why would he have his five daughters having Masters and Ph.Ds and his wife educated and putting women in key positions in the country?

“I don’t think it is.

“Aisha Buhari, who granted the interview did not give that interview to bring down her husband’s government.

“She was only trying to make peace among perceived aggrieved members in the polity.

“My wife joins commissioners and my workers to condemn what I do too.

“That does not mean she is fighting me, rather a bridge of peace between me and them, Okorocha said.
